Cancer Zodiac Season Begins
Today the Sun turns the page to start a new chapter in the warm & nurturing sign of Cancer. The past four weeks found us floating about like beautiful social butterflies in the season of the busybody, Gemini.
Yet now we can begin to ground down again, landing into the comforts of home & family and seeking out the peaceful feelings that come from a more solid form of security.
This water sign ruled month is a beautiful time to get back in touch with how you truly want to feel, so you can begin to take more mindful steps towards keeping your dreams alive far into the future.
Where Gemini season was flighty and fun, Cancer wraps us up in our deeper needs and emotions, reminding us of the need to cultivate a more creative, happy & safe space, as we also begin to...
surround ourselves with more of the
people we trust and care about the most!
Summer Solstice 2017 Is Here!
As the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky, those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere rise up to celebrate our longest day of the year with special time-honored rituals to praise our love of the light.
The Earth is now tilting on its axis like a bumblebee clinging to a sunflower, worshipping the brilliance of the sun in all of its glory, as we mark the height of summer and the culmination of intentions set long ago when the days were darker.
After today, the Sun’s rays will begin to fade away again, but for now, we can happily wrap
ourselves in the warmth of it all, living out loud, and fully enjoying the lushness of our gardens blooming into brightness as we finally witness our previous efforts bearing fruit. Soaking it all in, the day has come when we can all
come out into the wide open and dance alongside all of the many splendored inhabitants of this amazing planet. United under the warmth of these extended daylight hours, we celebratethe immense loveliness of life in all
of its fullness.
This is our time to shine!
Last of the Granny Witches aka Appalachian Conjurers'
We are a peculiar breed. Our roots grow deeper than the cedars, and yet we don’t know precisely where or who it is that we grew from. We are a mystery as old as these hills themselves, and it doesn’t take much figuring to know that we are enigmas of intentional design and destiny.
God knows our names.
We are not Northerners — damn Yankees, the men folks’ Confederate influence called them — and this we know without a doubt. I myself was always preened into believing I was a Southern child, born out of notions of gallantry and romance, but the fact is, I ain’t a low country belle and I’ve never picked a shred of cotton or been to a debutante ball.
We are not peaches.
And these mountain women before us were not delicate flowers or distressed coquettes. In these old heirloom hills, the women are as tough as the men, and then some. There was only one person Papaw was leery of, and that was Mamaw. No, you are not a peach, never mind how long you’ve thought you were or the times your daddy said so. No, you’re not. You are not easily bruised fruit. The blood in our veins is laced with old magic and the secrets of the noble savants before us.
We are the last of the granny witches.
The old ones, the original Appalachian queens, were daughters of the Celts and the offspring of Druids and medieval mavens and the natives of the old world craft, and we are their children. And although we are indeed as mysterious as these old hills, we still have that Celt and Cherokee elder magic in our bones.
I have beheld divination in my grandmother’s kitchen as she would foretell future events spelled out in the remnants of black tea or coffee grounds on the bottom of a common porcelain cup. With my own eyes I have witnessed warts and scars blown clean off the skin with nothing more than a believing breath and a skyward nod towards The Maker. Those magic women, those healers of wounds and tellers of fortunes and hex casters never considered themselves anything but noble and proud and God-fearing, and it didn’t bother them to be called a granny witch or a bee charmer or a medicine woman. These were gifts to them from the Divine.
And I recall bed sheets over mirrors in rooms where some tired soul had just given up the ghost. Nobody wants to be haunted forever, not even by somebody they once loved, and so they cover up the mirror so the spirit won’t see themselves and linger around. Ain’t a’ one of us needs a specter in the house. That’s why Sister Brown paints her ceiling haint blue. You just never know and can never be too sure. Some folks don’t know when to leave, even after they’re dead. And the horseshoe hanging upright above the front door won’t do a thing for the spirits, but at least your luck won’t ever run out.
And you do such things yourself, too, and likely have never spent a juncture of a thought as to why, or from where or who, or for what consequence. I would wager you’d never pick up a coin that’s face down or cross the path of a black cat without blessing yourself (or at least thinking that you’re not superstitious anyway and you convince yourself there’s no need give that cat a second thought), and your very blood will chill when a broken clock starts a tick-tick-ticking again, for you already know what that means, and it’s not to tell the time.
There once was many more of us, back in the old days when it seemed like God was sleeping somewhere over on the mountain and the old ones ruled the land and fended for themselves. But that time has long gone. We must work harder to preserve our magic, for it is fading into the background noise of technology and naysayers and law men that tell us we are common simple folk and feed us pills and poverty to quiet us. I fear that we are truly the last of the granny witches, the last tellers of tales, and that will be the end of our magic.
Some of us have already lost it.
But that old blood still courses through my veins, and perhaps you can feel it, too, when the sparrow smashes against a window or the cow moos after dark. What we send out into the yonder surely comes back home to us, eventually. It always has.
Send out your magic. Don’t be the last of your kind. We are the daughters of the Celts and the offspring of Druids and medieval mavens and the natives of the old world craft. And yes, God knows your name. Tell your tales and bewitch history, just like the mother mountains with her ages of charm and mystery, where peaches have never grown.
I just wanted to take a second and tell you a bit about Melanie. If you go to our "Web Links" section you'll find a link to her site which is where I get a lot of inspiration that I share with you. It is an incredible site that you should definitely check out. It also gives you her F.I.T (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) Info. If you'll indulge me a moment I'd just like to tell you a little bit about Melanie in her own words.....
Why Do I Do What I Do?
I love channeling the Archangels and bring through their love and guidance and frequency. But you know, if wasn’t too long ago that I was totally disconnected from my own light.
I had no idea I had angels around me, and really, I was totally depressed, lost, and confused.
But then I had an experience. I connected with Archangel Michael. I learned to hear and receive the messages from my guides and I learned how to bring through their frequency and guidance and love in a way that other people could experience.
And now, I’m so passionate about helping people to have real experiences with the angels. To help you reconnect with the fullness of your inner light, to rekindle your authentic truth, and reignite the light within you, the passion within you, because you are a unique authentic spiritual being.
Your work here in the world, your light, your unique purpose is so needed. And by connecting with the angels and reconnecting with spirit and with the energy of divine love, that light in you is ready to come to the surface, to create a ripple out far beyond you, to make a difference in your life, so that you can live with greater joy and love and purpose and fulfillment.
Bringing love, light and greater joy into your life doesn’t stop with you. When you shine your light, it creates a ripple our far beyond you that brings positive impact, healing and positive change to the entire world, to those closest to you, to your friends and family, to all of humanity.
And this is why I do what I do, because the messages and frequency and the love of the angels help to turn on your light, and your light is so needed in the world.
Why Do You Need Psychic Protection?
Even if you have learned many of your life's lessons at this point, and have made the choice to walk a path of love and light in service of others, there will be challenges and negativity you'll be faced with.
For light workers and those committed to walking a path of love, light, and service, there may be some interference from negative entities whose intention is to disrupt the path of spiritual growth and evolution you're on. These sorts of “negative disruptions” are what some people refer to as “psychic attack” or “psychic greeting” and while I have definitely experienced my fair share of this type of energy, I can assure you it is nothing to be afraid of.
When the negative disruptions do come from entities, (whom I see no point in referring to by name here) their goal is to hinder your forward momentum. Negative disruptions or psychic attacks have over time caused many souls to become lost in self doubt, fear, and suffering… But many more have achieved even higher levels of love and light despite these psychic attacks.
Entities always start off small, by noticing a slight opening in the auric field, a small chip in the shield of light (like self doubt, anger, fatigue or frustration), which they are able to focus upon, influence and cause the compromised area within the natural light body to grow.
Keep in mind that drugs and alcohol weaken your natural auric protection… So if you do choose to partake, be sure you put on an extra layer of light and consciously maintain your energy field, which you'll learn more about shortly.
When thinking in terms of psychic protection, it is most common for people to think of needing to be protected from the intentions of other human beings, as well as other types of negative entities. While these are both real phenomenons, and it is wise to become versed in psychic protection from external energies, more often than not the feelings of “psychic attack” or “negative disturbance” are actually coming from within your own personality.
When you begin to lift in vibration and frequency and continue to experience new levels of love and light… Your energy body begins a radical transformation as well. These changes in the energy body demand that past pain, and limiting views of self be released. When this happens, and the pain comes to the forefront, it absolutely feels like you're being energetically attacked.
When past pain comes up it's not you're like tapping into a clear cut memory of the past event or feeling of fear. Rather, past density seems to morph in a manner which accurately reflects your current challenges and lessons, in a way which will trigger you now, bringing up resistance and distraction to be dealt with immediately.
The simple answer, and response to both of these psychic disturbances, is to simply respond with compassion and love.
In the case of negative entities love absolutely repels them. In terms of your self, and processing your own past issues, love will carry you through.
“Let Love and Joy be Your Shield.” ~Archangel Michael
Any sort of negative disturbance whether internally or externally triggered can be a scary event. Nightmares, a spiral of negative thinking (which is not really your own), feelings of fear, anxiety, and dread can be absolutely miserable. These emotions and experiences can even hinder your ability to be of loving service to others, preventing you from continuing to move along your path of accomplishing your life's work and mission.
While responding with fear, anger, or distress, is a natural response to a negative disturbance, this is exactly the desired result if the disturbance is indeed external. This knee-jerk reaction causes the heart chakra to close, and any forward momentum on your path of love to be temporally (and some times indefinitely) drawn to a halt.
This is one of the reasons why it is so important as spiritual seekers, to identify and release past pain and frustrations, as the very nature of these pockets of density, attracts more of the like (from external entities, situations, or challenges).
In addition to actively identifying, processing, and releasing past pain, there are numerous effective practices of psychic protection which can be utilized on demand, always, and as needed.
By maintaining a high level of light energy, you will naturally repel and protect yourself from negativity, density and psychic attack, and combined with the five psychic protection exercises listed above, you will be able to enjoy more sustained periods of love and light.
5 more powerful techniques for Psychic Protection
There are many more psychic protection techniques. I’ve posted those here. Check them out and enjoy. Shine your light, stand in your truth, and protect yourself. Remember, love and joy are infinitely more powerful than any darkness or
negativity. If you're dealing with weird energy, surround yourself with light, call in your Angels and know that you’re good. You’ve got this. You’re loved, supported, blessed, and so it is.
1. Wear An Orb of White Light and Love
Imagine you are surrounded in a pulsing orb of white light and love. This orb of light serves to release any negative energy within its field… Into the light.
Visualize negative energy, entities, memories, and stuck or stagnant energy being released from your mind, body and spirit. Know and visualize the presence of your angels who take negativity in all it's many forms, and release it into the light.
Practice wearing the orb of light throughout your day, and before you encounter draining people, situations, or places. The light-orb will allow love and light through, while automatically repelling and releasing negativity or other dense energies into the light.
If you feel like your white orb of light needs a little boost in power, or a cleanse itself… Call upon Archangel Michael who will readily, willingly and effectively come to your assistance instantly upon your request.
“Archangel Michael Protect me now.”
2. Invoke A Purple Pyramid of Light
While perhaps less know and used, but just as effective as using white light, the purple pyramid of light is one of my personal favorite ways to shield. If you need help calling in the pyramid of light, ask Archangel Metatron to assist you in the process.
“Archangel Metatron, please protect my mind, body and spirit with a purple pyramid of light. Cleanse, and uplift my energy and release any and all negativity present into the light.”
Visualize and imagine you're completely contained within a 3D pyramid of purple light, with the peak of the pyramid above your head, and the base extending down below your feet, and into the earth.
The purple light, infused with the energy of the violet flame will effortlessly transmute any negativity real or perceived, into the light. The pyramid itself is also a powerfully healing, and protective form.
3. Mirrored Ball
Another powerful technique for psychic protection is to visualize you're surrounded by a mirrored ball of light, which effortlessly reflects any negativity away from you, while allowing love and well being to remain.
Although this mirrored ball technique may seem simple, it is extremely effective and powerful, especially when you are around large crowds, with multiple sources of negativity.
A slight variation of this technique is to visualize a mirrored light suit of body armor all around you… Kind of like you're the silver surfer!
4. Affirmations and Prayer
Thoughts, intentions, and prayers are useful psychic protection tools as well, because they can help you to build a field of positive energy around you.
Simply thinking or saying “All is well, I am safe, I am experiencing the love and light that is all around me” can be helpful in shifting your vibration away from fear, and back into love.
Invoke Archangel Michael, Archangel Uriel, or Jesus in a similar way by simply stating their name, and inviting their Divine presence and frequency to protect and uplift you.
Affirmations like “Only love remains in my presence” or “I am surrounded by love and joy which keep me safe” are powerful forms of psychic protection especially when you can say and feel and believe the truth behind these words.
5. Angels of Protection
Angels are always ready and willing to assist you in releasing your past pain, and protecting you from external negative influences.
Ask for help when you are in need, and be open to the angelic assistance available to you… when you ask, your angels, guides, ascended masters, and the divine will always come to your assistance in one way or another.
A simple mental request of “Angels, surround me with your love and light to shield my energy, now” is enough to invoke the powerful energy of your angelic team that is always waiting to serve you.
Use any of the above visualizations separately, or together often or as needed, such as when you're required to enter a busy public place, or converse with someone who is overly negative, or who just seems to rub you the wrong way.
A little effort in consciously shielding can do wonders to prevent you from becoming dragged into drama and lowered in vibration yourself.
How to Protect Yourself from Negativity and Fear-Based Constructs
Through the course of your life on Earth, you will be presented with challenges, obstacles and lessons of duality, this is a given.
And yet, with a few basic psychic protection techniques you can learn to energetically protect yourself so you're not adversely affected. Psychic protection will help you to stay in a positive state so you can progress on your spiritual path, and accomplish your highest potential without being weighed down by lower vibrations from others, or sabotaged from any sort of psychic attack.
And of course, your angels will be with you to help you each step of the way!
The brilliant thing about using light to psychically protect yourself is that it blocks out lower vibrations of negativity, fear-based constructs, and lower fourth-dimensional entities.
If you've taken on any of these sorts of things, it also helps to repel them from your energy field. You’ll be filled with so much light, Christ consciousness, and truth, that lower vibrations are quite literally repelled. This releases them into the divine light, over to the Angels, and up and out of your energy field.
When to Use Psychic Protection
Psychic protection is something you can do when you're standing in line at the grocery store, when you are on the phone, out in public, or just at home. Whenever you sense negative energy entering into your space, thoughts, or vibrational field.
A key sign that there is negative energy is your mood. Are you in joy, in love, in positivity? Wonderful! Keep doing what you’re doing.
If you’re feeling depressed, fearful, moody, or you’ve snapped at someone, that is a key sign that you have taken on some harsh energy or there's harsh energy around. Psychic protection will cleanse you, protect your aura, fill you with light, and shift you back into alignment with the centered, empowered, awakened human being of light that you authentically are.
Invoke Archangel Michael and Your Spirit Team
Begin by focusing on your heart. Visualize light glowing in your heart center as well as light all around you. Invoke your Angels,
“Archangel Michael and my entire team of Guides and Angels, enter into this time and space to cleanse and protect my energy on every level. I ask this according to divine will, for the highest and greatest good, and so it is.”
Breathe light into your heart and as you exhale, let your golden heart light expand around your entire energy in an orb or an egg.
Create a golden sphere of light protecting your mind, body, and spirit. It protects you on every level from anything that is not in alignment with your highest integrity and divine will for your ascension into a radiant light being.
Visualize Golden Orbs Around Your Energy Centers
Visualize this orb of golden light around you and imagine that it’s becoming stronger through light rays streaming in from your team of Guides and Angels.
Visualize light from every direction to strengthen this shield. Now, focus on the center of your mind; on your pineal gland in the center of your head. Imagine a little spark of golden light.
As you focus upon this light in your mind’s eye, envision it becoming brighter. See it expand from a little spark to the size of a tennis ball. Vibrantly glowing with golden light like the sun. Breathe and relax and let this light expand further to the size of a volley ball – glowing brilliantly with pure source light, Christ light, divine light.
Let this orb of light drop down through your throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral, and root chakras. All the way to your earth star chakra below you. Visualize this light clicking into place and spreading out like a disk of light. See it creating a base and foundation for you.
Call in More Light
Focus once again on your pineal gland. Visualize another spark of light, more quickly now; effortlessly growing into an orb. See it lower and sit just below your belly button. Let that orb of golden light expand around your legs, feet, and abdomen, protecting this energy trifecta. You are protecting your root, sacral and solar plexus with golden light.
Again, focus on your pineal gland, your third eye, calling in another orb of light. Let this one lower down to your heart center, expanding around you in an orb. Create a fourth orb of light that lowers into your throat. Then finally, visualize an orb of light in your pineal gland creating a helmet or shield around your mind, mental being, and head.
Focus on your heart, letting that orb of light grow and expand around you to once again fill this golden egg of light. Now you are protected on every level: mind, body, spirit, all of your energy centers, and your being are filled with crystalline consciousness.
Accelerate the Light
Imagine the light around you is becoming more vibrant. It accelerates, raising in vibration, increasing in frequency. The particles shine brighter and vibrate at a higher rate. Inside the orb, any lower vibrations you have taken on are pushed out and released into the light of the divine.
Ask, “Angels, please reach in and pull out any density, stagnant or stuck energy, fear-based constructs, and negativity.” Allow this to happen. Release into the light and then focus on the orb around you, shining vibrantly, protecting you. Allow love, guidance, and positive vibrations of awakening to flow in while protecting you against anything that does not serve.
This shield of light protects you on every level and empowers you to radiantly shine as the empowered, beautiful, spiritual being you authentically are. “Thank you, Angels for your help and support in crafting this light shield, and so it is.”
The Quick Version
You can also do this quickly.
“Angels, protect me psychically now.”
Then open your heart and let that golden light shield fill around you. Tune into the light in your pineal and let it drop down, creating your base. Tune into another light and drop it down to shield your lower chakras. Tune into the light around your heart, your throat, your head.
Call it forth with support, light, and frequency from the Angels. You are a powerful spiritual being, a conscious creator. So, step into this power, vibrantly shine your light, and protect yourself psychically so that you can stay in a state of love and joy and flow these positive vibrations forth. They make such a huge difference in your personal life. They manifest love in the greater field of all that is.

For a Happy & Blessed New Year
Here is a very simple meditation to practice to use for Healthy & Prosperous 2017
Use this Spell to make the best out of 2017!
2016 was not my year, many sit on new year with a new beer, while I stay clear of this drink that keeps your mind unclear.
I make it my will, eat and drink your fill, may this room be blessed and no one steal.
Toasts for the future to come and merry meet
Lamb and pork delicate meats
Life is fast
Don't let it pass
Throw bad tiding away in the trash
I say it again, I say it twice, let my family have blessings thrice.
Bless this home, bless my self, may everyone around me be surrounded in love and wealth
For Prosperity & End Debt in 2017
Money and wealth can not buy health but one thing it can buy is self help
When you are down and in the gutter recite this spell and begin to mutter.
I cannot sleep until my pockets are deep debt collectors begin to creep.
Some people want cars some people want jeeps
Some people want to clear their debt that are mountain steep.
Clear me of my bills, clear me of ill will, I am not a thief I will never steal
I will recite this song and do a dance to accumulate a cash advance
Money money money
sky so sunny sunny sunny
I am hungry hungry hungry
Stomach rumbling that's my tummy
Bring in coin we sing and join the times have turned that's the point
Bring me gold and silver
I feel the feeling realer
I am my families foundation holding them up like a pillar
So I stand tall and proud
Throughout the crowd
I clear my throat and yell it loud.
Clear my debt
It is a threat
Threaten me no more
